St Paul’s Sports Ministry includes Upward basketball and cheer, specifically designed for kindergarten through eighth grade girls and boys that promotes the love of Jesus, and character building self-esteem in every child, through basketball and cheerleading. We are teaching children and families how to build a relationship with God and personally develop themselves. We are thankful for all of our volunteers- coaches, referees, concession, approximately 25 volunteers, Upward would not be such a big success without them!
